After a TV dinner explodes in her microwave, modern New York City girl Cathy Vorhees wakes up in 1959. Mortified to find herself living the life of uptight Cathy Voight, office tyrant and recipe creator, Cathy bravely tries to relax and enjoy my psychosis with the help of her nifty '50s flatmates Tilly and Miranda, who think she's suffered an electric shock.

More often, Cathy reacts like a movie heroine waking up next to a strange man with absolutely no memory of how... the knife sticking out of his chest got there. When she isn't expressing shock at all the pork products, fur coats, and sexual harassment in the workplace, she's trying to make a confidante out of hunky Hank, owner of her apartment building, and to find a way home.

While some of Cathy's actions are out of character for a savvy city girl (i.e., brainlessly blurting out future events like the Kennedy assassination to Hank), she's got an enjoyable, sarcastic narrative voice that carries readers from confusion and despair (why hadn't that microwave outright killed me?) to a You-go-girl! finale that's sure to please.

    " Surprisingly better than I expected. It isn't often one reads of a time-travel comedy back to the 1950's. One has to suspend disbelief a bit and also the author's a little heavy on the pop culture references, but otherwise I liked it. "

    " Completely a recreational read, but very funny. The premise - modern, ambitious, single woman transported back to 1959 - is a bit contrived but leads to some amusing situations and comparisons. "

    " Found this when I was looking for something to listen to on a long drive. I was surprised by how much I liked it. The main character is a self-centered, kind of clueless woman in advertizing in 2006 who is transported by an exploding microwave into 1959. I probably would have tossed it aside if I'd been reading it since the character was so frustrating but the actor/reader is superb. She kept me engaged and laughing. Time travel is always intriguing and the rest of the characters were great examples of '50s adults. "

    " Chelsea lately's wit combined with Gary rosses' story telling abilities made Naomi Neale's 'I Went to Vassar For This?' one to remember. "
